Peasmarsh Festival: East Sussex

July 4 @ 11:30 am

Richard Lester, Tim Horton, Sascha Bota, Benjamin Gilmore, Graham Mitchell, Emily Nebel, Sally Pendlebury

Turina The Bullfighter’s Prayer, Op. 34
Debussy Selection of preludes from Book 2 and Poisson d’or (from Images)
Puccini Crisantemi
Rossini Duo for Cello and Double Bass in D major

A programme celebrating the beauty, pathos, passion and wit of Latin musical culture. Turina’s Bullfighter’s Prayer was originally written for a quartet of mandolin-like folk instruments. Commissioned for a soiree with virtuoso double bassist Domenico Dragonetti, Rossini’s Duo is a witty, sensitive and virtuosic demonstration of how entertaining these two instruments can be. Puccini’s elegy, Crisantemi, was composed in one night, upon hearing of the death of his friend the Duke of Savoy, and is rarely heard in its original version for string quartet.
